CCORS Survey

Hello Cape Fear SORBA. Currently there is a debate going on that we need your help with. Currently there are two options on the table for the next race series race in Greenville at the Bicycle Post Trail. The first is the usual cross country style race (like what we will have at Blue Clay next weekend). The other is a “short track race” that will be significantly shorter in race distance and race time (around 20 minutes) but higher intensity. We need your help as racers and club members to determine what we should do. So the question is: Would you prefer a short track race or a cross country race?

Below I have posted a link to a poll that can help us make this decision. Please take a moment and select an option that you believe is the best one.

Thanks for your help! Hope to see you at Blue Clay next Sunday for the 3 race in the CCORS!

Workday 2/12/11 at Blue Clay

From Barry Wray:

There are less than 4 weeks until the first race of the year at the Blue Clay Bike Park! There is a lot of work out there we can do to improve the trail and help make it possible to ride sooner after it rains. So, we are going to have another work day at Blue Clay Saturday morning (2/12/11) from 8:30 am until ?. Please come out and help if you can. Bring work gloves, wheelbarrows, shovels, even an ax if you have it.

BTW, the BC trail is still very wet from all the rain we have had. We worked on rerouting one section of trail this past weekend. The reroute was completed but is still very soft and needs time to dry and firm up. how to determine value of domain name . We put in a temporary ride around until this new section has a chance to dry. Might be a good idea to ride UNCW until the entire trail at BC can dry out.

Thanks and I hope to see a good turnout for the workday on Saturday.
